Customary Units Of Capacity
This brief video is from The Math Party National Standards Program and features a rap song to help students remember U.S. units of capacity.
Real Life Comparisons of Customary Capacity
The video gives real-life comparisons and demonstrates common conversions of customary capacity (cups, pints, quarts, and gallons).
Cups, Pints, and Quarts
Students will be shown how cups, pints and quarts differ. The slides model how these measure compare in capacity. 2 cups=1 pint, 2 pints=1 quart, 4 cups=1 quart. User clicks through the slides.
King George-Cups, Pints, Gallons
The video begins like Star Wars and it provides a strategy that will help students remember liquid conversions. They may know how many cups are in a Pint, but they may have trouble identifying how many cups are in a Gallon. Use this strategy, draw it out and practice at home. This is a great teaching resource for elementary students and/or special education students (1:57)
Big G (King George) = Gallon
Four Queens = 4 Quarts in a Gallon
2 Prince & Princesses = 2 Pints
We Know the Measurement Song
In this video the words to the measurement song are displayed on the screen with matching pictures (example 2 cups=1 pint). No one sings but music is played to the tune "Farmer in the Dell". (0:50)
How to Convert Units of Measure
Your Tutor Online Video. This video shows how to convert one unit of measure to another using a chart. Video shows conversion using a chart as an extra help. Video is good quality and good for all students as a review or initial learning of the topic.
Customary Unit Conversions
Students learn the following customary units of measurement: inch, foot, ounce, ton, fluid ounce, pint, gallon, yard, pound, cup, quart, and so on. Students also learn to convert from one customary unit of measurement to another using the following conversion factors: 60 seconds = 1 minute, 7 days = 1 week, 3 feet = 1 yard, 16 ounces = 1 pound, 4 quarts = 1 gallon, and so on. Students are then asked to solve problems using conversion factors, such as 18 feet = ____ inches. Video is good qu
Metric Unit Conversions
Students learn that in the metric system, all measures of length are based on meters. For example, a centimeter is 1/100 of a meter. And all measures of weight are based on grams. For example, a kilogram is 1000 grams. And all measures of volume are based on liters. For example, a milliliter is 1/1000 of a liter. Students are then asked to solve problems using conversion factors, such as 4,500 milligrams = ____ grams.
Metric Conversions - Shortcut Method
The instructor teaches metric conversions using the shortcut method.
Converting Measurements in the Metric System

Metric Conversions - Shortcut Method
Video shows a fun way to convert numbers in the metric system. Videos gives a way to remember the way to convert.
How to Convert Inches Into a Fraction
When converting inches into fractions, it helps to remember that
inches are closely related to feet. A math teacher shows you how to convert 42 inches to 3 1/2 feet.
Applying the Metric System
In this video Sal Khan discusses the metric system while using a word problem concerning perimeter. (05:42) The instructor uses computer software for demonstration. (This problem concerns how to
convert kilometers to meters.)
Converting Within the Metric System
In this video Sal Khan discusses how to change decimeters to kilometers. (04:42) The instructor uses computer software for demonstration.
Time Lesson for Young Learners
This is a short video (01:26) that shows young learners how to tell time.
Telling Time to the Hour - A Frog's Day
A man narrates an animated story about a frog's day, which mentions various times of the day. When the times are mentioned, the video cuts away to a woman moving the hands of a clock to show the times. Innovative presentation.
